The portable, pocket-size C-Pen Reader Pen Scanner can serve as an aid for the visually impaired and those with reading difficulties such as dyslexia. As the device's nib passes over lines of text, it captures and reads aloud the words in English, Spanish or French. It also has playback capability and can transfer and store what's been read to one's PC or Mac for later retrieval. Containing five built-in dictionaries, it will even define (aloud) any word the user desires. A complete C-Pen Reader package includes line scanner, carrying case, USB cable, headphones, and instruction manual. (No additional software required.)
